Our Budget Process
As part of HWDSB’s commitment to being accountable to its community stakeholders, the Board informs its stakeholders of its budget for the upcoming school year to show how it uses its resources wisely, efficiently, effectively and equitably.
Each year, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board asks the community about how it should align its budget priorities for next year.
By aligning our resources to support budget priorities, we believe that all students will achieve their full potential.
Any questions you have regarding HWDSB’s budget, can be emailed to the Budget Department at [email protected]
Changing attitudes in society requires schools and school boards to be increasingly accountable for the use of public funds. Funds are generated at the school level from a number of different sources and used in a number of different ways to enhance the development of the educational programs and to support school initiatives.
Many school boards currently do not have procedures in place with respect to school generated funds. In order to address this need, representatives from the Ontario Association of School Business Officials (OASBO) Finance Committee, have collaborated to prepare procedures identifying key financial recording and reporting requirements. A representative from the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) was a member of this committee.
